MWS V's Dayton wire wheels
 
If you look a Smash's build thread you will see details on his Dayton wire wheels purchased from OZ.
I have just acquired a 2nd had set of Dayton chrome bolt on wires that were imported into the UK from the USA on an XJS. To my surprise they seem to weigh about half the weight of the MWS chrome bolt on wires.
The MWS wires are quite hard to put on single handed because of how heavy they are.
Just something else to consider if you are thinking of wire wheels for your kit.

Cheers jag. I'll start looking at these for my kit as wires are the end result. Show us pics when they are on a car!

Won't be swapping mine over until the spring but have a look at Smash's build thread for pictures of knock off Daytona's.
